31ST AUGUST 2019 ALL DAY DRUMMING WORKSHOP – LONDON!

Mohamed invites you to a very special one day workshop in aid of the Tawakaitou Hala Lahi orphanage, based in Petit Mbao, Dakar.

This year, with help from our extremely generous students, we managed to raise nearly £1000 to help the 50+ boys living in this orphanage in Dakar. They were sleeping on a cold concrete floor with no mattress, covers or pillows in a derelict building with no windows or doors, getting by on handouts from kind locals. With the money raised this year we managed to buy new mattresses, covers, pillows and mosquito nets for all, as well as cleaning products and food. We would love to raise money each year to be able to help more on our return, and for this we need your help!
